It's awards season. It's bowl season for film enthusiasts.
Like most of the 39 bowl games, it's just filler for network television. Three plus hours of your life you waste watching something that means nothing.
Below are a list of awards shows for film for the next two months and which bowl game from the 2014-15 bowl season they compare to:
Critics Choice Awards- New Orleans Bowl
First awards show. First bowl game. Who cares.
Golden Globe Awards- "New Years Six Bowls" that weren't Playoff Games
-Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler hosting is like watching Baylor play Michigan State. Good enough to maybe host a bigger awards show, but just fell short.
Writers Guild of America Awards- Military/Armed Forces Bowl
-Doesn't seem that important, but our military protects our freedom, and writers are one reason why actors have jobs.
Producers Guild of America Awards- Quick Lane Bowl
-The important people in television and film that are forgotten. Teams that play in this bowl are too. It's played in Detroit.
Screen Actors Guild Awards- GoDaddy.com Bowl
-Something to keep you occupied between the Golden Globes and the Oscars
Directors Guild of America Awards- Idaho Potato Bowl
-Nobody knows about this awards show and bowl game.
British Academy Film Awards- Bahamas Bowl
-There's a British connection to the Bahamas. That counts
Independent Spirit Awards- Beach Bowl
-Indie film awards. BYU is an Independent. Memphis is in the AAC. Same thing.
The Oscars- College Football Playoff Semifinals/National Championship
-This is the awards show that really matters. You may not like the hosts, the length of it, and the winners, but you'll watch because they've been talking about it for weeks and you want to see the big winner.
